On May 1st, the Borlee twins (Kevin & Jonathan) will run a 4 x 400 m relay in Belgium with their younger brother Dylan and a fourth runner. I would like to know if it has ever happened that 3 brothers run on the same (competitive) relay team in the history of track & field. Can someone help me? Thanks Phil
Short memories or just too young? The Smith Bros. (No beards, cough, cough;~) of Lincoln HS, NJ, in the mid-50's: Louis, Hosea, and (drum roll) Zinneford. Fourth man Richie Simms was every bit as fast as they scorched the (old) Madison Square Garden 11-Lap Track. Louis was only a Freshman.
Fortunately, my long-term memory is a lot better than the short, as evidenced by confusing Elijah Greer (1:46.2) w/ Andrew Wheating (1:49.24) this weekend.

In Event 105 at the Penn Relays, the HS Girls 4X800R for Large Schools, there are three Parker's as Neenah HS (WI) team members. Jessica, Jennifer, and Alison. But their class isn't listed, so don't know if, or how, they're related. It's possible, however, that they ARE sisters!!
They ran 9:24.89 in their heat.
ADD: Walt Murphy's great Penn Preview (front page article) DOES confirm that they're sisters. However, still unknown are their class, or whether two of them are twins, or whatever.
